Lafayette College will be continuing to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and government recommendations. Any impact or changes to the Pre-Orientation Service Program (POSP), early move-in schedule, program camps, and/or the number of individuals accepted to the program will be communicated to students as soon as possible.

Welcome!

The Pre-Orientation Service Program (POSP), coordinated by the Landis Center for Community Engagement, is an immersive service experience that unites First-Year Students, Returning Leaders, Faculty, Staff, and Community Members in an inclusive environment before the Fall Semester begins.

Participants engage in meaningful service, build lasting relationships, and develop as both leaders and active citizens. 

POSP is the catalyst that encourages students to make connections through their involvement in meaningful service experiences, and results in increased appreciation of our Easton Community.

Check out the video below to hear perspectives from some current student leaders about POSP!
